This week is Disability Action Week in Queensland. At Endeavour Foundation, we believe everyone has the right to work in a job that suits their abilities, live in a safe and comfortable home that meets their needs, and have real friendships. You might not know this but before she was on TV, Angie Kent was already a sister and a friend to people with disability. Angie shares our passion for social inclusion and equality. Janie Hop from #teampossible spoke to Angie about friendship, love, and the things we can all do to celebrate the contribution of people with disability.
Angie was quite open to talk about her life. She used to be a support worker to someone who has a disability, a young man named Tom.
They had fun on their outings that they went on and they both enjoyed their time together. Tom sometimes presented Angie with an invisible rose, which she thought was so sweet of him.
Angie seems to feel a connection with people who have a disability and is happy and proud of them when they do well and achieve their dreams. She also has a passion for helping people with a disability to achieve their dreams just like Endeavour Foundation. And I really like that about her.
I felt so honoured to know Angie, and my experience in interviewing her was a thrill for me so I thought I should share some of the stuff we talked about in this video.
